Most people don't realize that it costs 3 to 6 times and even more to build on a private island vs the mainland.
So it is far better to find a structure already built than to build one on your own unless you have unlimited funds to do so.
Location to a harbour is important. This island is about a 12 min or boat ride to the main harbour.
Its far enough to be totally private but close enough to get supplies which are right in town.

This is a completely private 65 acre ocean island situated in Lobster Bay, Nova Scotia. It is approximately 1 mile from the quaint fishing village of Wood’s Harbour. Birth your boat in the harbour when on the mainland. It is the perfect distance for complete privacy, yet a sense of security as emergency and medical centers are close by. It is also a pleasant and convenient 15 minute drive to major grocery and hardware stores, as well as banking. Also, there are convenience stores minutes from the harbour.
The entire experience of traveling to and from the island, as well as being on the island, is of that of a wildlife sanctuary. On the boat ride, you will often encounter seals and dolphins. Stepping off the boat, you will see baby lobsters. On the island itself, there is everything from many species of birds such as goldfinches, geese, falcons and owls, as well as mammals such as mink and deer. At times you can actually see a heard of deer in one glance.
There are 4 structures situated on various places on the island, all with dynamic views of ocean and terrain. The main cottage was completed in 2006. All structures were permitted and built to meet and/or exceed international building codes. Superior concrete siding was used in construction that resists elements and will last the buildings lifetime. Additionally, the builder installed galvanized metal strapping from each truss to secure the roofs to the structures.
The main cottage is about 800 square feet (74 square meters). It is completely self sustaining with 6 solar arrays, a water cistern, and a fireplace for heating. There is every convenience right down to Internet and Satellite TV. There is nothing you need to bring but yourself, food and clothing. There are 3 English-style bedrooms, each with their own toilets and vanities. There is a shared shower between the 2 main bedrooms. The 3rd. bedroom can accommodate a full size bed. The kitchen is a gourmet’s paradise! As well as full size refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher, there is a large 36 square foot (3.3 sq meter) island with a secondary sink. There is more cabinet space than once can find use for. There is hardwood floor throughout, and a knotty pine ceiling. There is a 10’ x 10’ outbuilding for storage a short distance away.
The other 2 cottages are located at the southern and western shores, each about a half hour walk through a dynamic, undisturbed forest. You can pitch a tent deep in the woods, and not hear the ocean waves hit the shoreline should you so desire.
Island owner will gift the new owner a 21 foot Ocean Worthy Boat with 50hp Motor after closing.
